6:30-7:30pm Martin Stares - Business Use of ChatGPT

# Business Use of ChatGPT
## Chat GPT capabilities
* Very quick introduction to ChatGPT
* How it differs from Google; prompts and conversations; limitations.

## Prompt engineering
We can get ChatGPT to do many things for us if we know how to ask properly. This is called prompt engineering. This section shows some of the richness of prompt engineering.

## Building solutions with ChatGPT
* Capabilities are not solutions
* The media gives us a lot of use-cases, but are they valuable? We critique some examples to see whether they are chasing technology or providing real value.

* case study of an advisory system, combining my expertise and ChatGPT’s expertise.
* inputs needed from BA and SME
* model ChatGPT conversations
* how to move from manual to digital solutions.
